    Advances in Marine Ecosystem Modelling Research Symposium

    June 23rd - 26th 2008
    Following on from the success of AMEMR 2005, the Plymouth Marine Laboratory is pleased to announce that the second Advances in Marine Ecosystem Modelling Symposium is scheduled to be held in Plymouth in June 2008.

    Modelling provides a key scientific technique by which we can elucidate the workings of the marine system and predict its evolution in both the short and long term. The symposium is being convened as a forum for presentation and discussion of all aspects of model based marine ecosystem research, encompassing numerical, conceptual, mathematical and statistical approaches. We are particularly keen that this symposium will contribute to the next generation of model based exploration by providing scientists and students an opportunity to discuss and contrast recent advances, outstanding problems and future requirements.

    Initial plans are that the symposium will be run in plenary session with keynote speakers providing summaries and challenges to selected topics. Contributed papers will be 15 - 20 minutes in length including discussion. Posters will be displayed through out the meeting and will be the subject of a dedicated session.

    The symposium will be held at the Sherwell Centre, University of Plymouth. The Sherwell Conference Centre offers two, spacious, custom-built lecture halls with extensive AV facilities one with 290 seats whilst the other has 280 seats.
